The Grassland Reserve Program is an easement program that protects grazing lands from conversion to non-agricultural uses. Landowners can graze easement land and grow forage crops but the land is protected from being divided into small parcels by development. Applicants must have clear title and legal access to the land. A grazing management plan is required for participants.
